Re: TWW Friday 2/14💌😘

  • Sorry to post and ghost yesterday, had truly ridiculous work day/call night. Today is shaping up to be similar. Boo. 

    @bows22 Since we are almost CD/DPO buddies and you have more patience than me, it looks like we will both be testing tomorrow. I hope to not see you here again!

    @mvt2003 So excited you have 9 little blastocysts! I'm sending good development vibes their way!

    @krystrist2014 I decided to buy FRERs at walmart yesterday, and the checkout lady was a patient of mine, so I ended up literally putting some beer back on the shelf so that I could use the self checkout. Sorry DH. Thought you may appreciate that :)

    Month/Cycle: 2/1

    CD/DPO: 24/9

    Timing: Good 

    Typical LP length: unknown

    Testing: Tomorrow. I managed to not test before now, and I realize 10DPO is still early, but not knowing things drives me nuts and I can't wait anymore. 

    R/R: Battery died in my Proven brand BBT this morning and I have been using it less than 2 months. Will be buying a new thermometer if needed for next month. Annoying.

    CS/Q: Nada

  • @fitzfizz good luck testing tomorrow! 10 DPO is perfectly acceptable. I just really don’t want to see a BFN so I’m putting it off haha. That sucks about your thermometer! When I temped I used a Mabis and liked it. I really hope you don’t need a new one though!
  • @fitzfizz hahahah!! I don’t blame you! It’s just so awkward even with strangers but definitely with acquaintances! 

    I have my FX for both of you ladies! @bows22  & @fitzfizz

  • @bows22 I'm so glad you got to talk to your boss about expectations - it's a relief to know he understands your team's true capacity!

    @fitzfizz Thank you friend!!! I would totally have noped out of having a patient ring up my FRERs too!!!! :D

  • @kpearse99 Oh friend. So many hugs to you, I am here for you. <3 

    I'm doing endometrin this cycle - I start tonight, I stocked up on liners :D Is this the correct place to resurrect the "scooping" discussion we've had in the past?! :D

  • @mvt2003 hahaha the "scooping" discussion  :D:D  We can certainly resurrect that because I still do it hahaha So gross!! I take crinone though, they are vaginal suppositories. It says it's a gel but it looks more like a cream haha, I think they need to revisit the definition of what "gel" is. Anywho.... every 3 days or so, while I'm in the shower, I would scoooooooooop out the extra gel cream that didn't get absorbed. @mokay19 (I think I have the right person this time hahaha) is the one that brought this technique to my attention. I'm not sure how endometrin works though...?

    Also, I am beyond grateful for you, friend! You've been there for me through so much so far and I couldn't have gotten through any of it without you. <3

  • @bows22 hubby is working from home today... Nothing super special planned that I'm aware of but I'm excited for an excuse to spend extra time together. Happy Valentine's Day!

    @mvt2003 I don't understand IVF either but I'm praying and hoping you get pregnant with a... Manageable... Number of babies. ☺️

    @fitzfizz I wouldn't buy pregnancy tests from someone I know either. Too many people think it's easy to get and stay pregnant so they assume if you're testing you'll be announcing soon.

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 18/3

    Timing: -5, -3, +1

    Typical LP length: weird... Usually long. 

    Testing: waiting... As long past 10dpo as I can stand.

    R/R: my husband agreed to booking a Disney trip and I'm really excited. I. Love. Disney World. Choosing a date while trying to conceive is so complicated! I think I'm just gonna book it and roll with it wherever we are in this journey when we go.

  • @bows22 Glad the talk with your boss went well! Hope you have a wonderful dinner (and cake!) tonight and FX for testing tomorrow.

    @fitzfizz Loling at the thought of you buying FRERs and beer from your patient. FX for testing tomorrow.

    @mvt2003 So excited about your embryos!

    @kpearse99 Hope AF shows up soon or you can get some answers from BW. Hugs.

    R/R: Happy Valentine’s Day ladies! DH and I are holding off on going to dinner until tomorrow to avoid the crowds and upcharging but he bought me some pretty multicolor roses that got delivered last night <3

    CS/Q: Telling myself this dip today is a secondary estrogen surge but really who knows at this point.

    @kpearse99 aww sorry for your BFN my friend. I hope AF shows up for you soon then. Oh no, not a cyst :( I hope every thing goes ok when you find out more later. 

    @mvt2003 mmm enchiladas. Hope you enjoy hose tonight. Aww yay. Pandora charm. I collect them too. Aww the Cinderella Charm. How cute. I have a charm that’s from the Cinderella collection. It’s the heart that says a dream is a wish your heart makes. I love it.... Haha 😆 9 kids lol He’s funny.

  • @kpearse99 I hope it’s not a cyst, but if it is I hope they give you what the plan is soon! I’m so grateful for you too, friend! I’m always here for you!

    @BLuvsE yay Disney! I agree with just booking when you want to go then figuring it out later!

    @legallykate I love getting flowers!! Enjoy your dinner! 

    @mindyb2019 jealous of your long weekend! What is family day??
    kpearse99
  • @mindyb2019 we have a long weekend here too! Monday in the US is President's Day. I'm so looking forward to a long weekend!

    @BLuvsE I LOVE Disney too!!!! Enjoy!!

    @legallykate I also love getting flowers! They can really brighten up a bad day or just make you feel a little extra special! Enjoy!

    AFM - the RE called. Turns out I do have a cyst. My estrogen levels were pretty elevated at 473. She said that AF should arrive in about 2 weeks and then the cyst would be gone and everything will go back to normal. I read that Clomid can increase your chances of getting an ovaian cyst, and the only thing I did differently this cycle was switch to Clomid. womp!

  • @bows22 Family day is just a stat day we get off in Canada every Feb just so that people don’t have to work and can spend more time with their family doing anything they like. It’s pretty awesome lol 😁 Just spending time with your loved ones. 

    @kpearse99 sorry for your cyst and that you have to wait 2 weeks for AF to come Womp. Least your cyst will go after then so that’s good news. 
    kpearse99bows22
  • @kpearse99 Boo to your cyst. Why does your RE think it will take two more weeks for AF to arrive? Because of the cyst?
  • @mindyb2019 Family day sounds awesome (Canada - 1 bajillion, US - 0 lol), enjoy your long weekend!
    mindyb2019
  • @legallykate haha 😆 thanks. 
  • @legallykate yea, they said that the cyst is making my estrogen super high and that once the estrogen drops (I guess meaning that the cyst goes away) than AF will arrive 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • @mvt2003 I think we have never actually gone to a restaurant on Feb 14th. DH is far too cheap and neither of us like crowds. 13th for the win!

    @kpearse99 Boo! Not a cyst! Your poor ovaries need to catch a break! Did they say how big it was? FX it goes away soon.

    @BLuvsE I hope the Disney trips works out, sounds fun!

    @legallykate Literally my first month as a "real doctor" I went to the grocery store late at night to buy cat litter and vodka. The only teller was a patient I had seen that week to discuss how he needs to decrease drinking. So FRERs and beer wouldn't have been my weirdest experience haha

    @mindyb2019 Glad you made it over here!
    legallykate
  •  @bows22 @kpearse99 YAY for Disney lovers. Maybe soon we'll be swapping tips for Disney with a baby! 

    @kpearse99 BOO cysts. My doctor thinks I had one last cycle but I don't want to believe it so I'm pretending my 70+ day cycle was normal. Super healthy. Fingers crossed yours doesn't last that long, and you can get back in the saddle so to speak on a few weeks. I say drink up and eat ALLLL the sushi.

    @mindyb2019 I may just declare a family day for my family some random Wednesday soon. Sounds awesome.

  • @BLuvsE. I second that hope for Disney tips!  I love Disney.  My grandparents used to take all the grandkids every four years when we were kids.  But now many of the kids are married, so it gets a lot more expensive.  My grandfather is also in poor health, so even though that is his favorite place in the world, he can't really travel too well.  Someday soon hopefully my parents might continue the tradition of bringing the grandkids.  
  • @dobiemom11 my grandmother LOVES Disney but can't really go anymore. It's bittersweet going without her. Last time, we drove so we could stop at her house on the way down and back. We live in Atlanta so it's just 8 hours and she's halfway, so it broke up the trip.
